There is another exciting programme of short oval racing at Aghadowey Oval this Saturday evening, August 20th, at Aghadowey Oval.

The high speed 2.0 Hot Rods will be in action in the second round of the Hoosier Racing Tyres Challenge Series, with recently crowned World Champion, Jordan Rochford from Portadown, set to make his first appearance at Aghadowey since winning the gold roof.
Jordan will be keen to put on a good show, as will recent form man Ryan McCrory from Antrim. Just a fortnight ago Ryan took a decisive win in the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy at neighbouring Tullyroan Oval. Other contenders will be another Antrim star, Conor Hughes, plus Bleary’s Drew McKeown and Broughshane’s David Kernohan to name a few.

The prestigious William Cooke Memorial Trophy for Stock Rods is also on the programme, raced each year in memory of the ace engineer and former racer from Kilrea. The current holder of the fine trophy is Crumlin’s Jonny Cardwell, and the current Irish Champion will be aiming for three in a row in the coveted event. Recently crowned World Champion Colin McNiece from Banbridge will be another big draw, as will Nutts Corner based racer Mark Crawford who last weekend added the National Championship crown to the European and British titles he won earlier this year.
NI Points Champion Dan Shannon of Glenavy, Cullybackey’s Marc Morrell and Ballymena stalwart Victor McAfee will be others in action too.

The young 6-11 year old stars in the Ninja Karts will be chasing the Golden Helmet Award, and they will be joined by English star Jenson Fish for the event.

The all action Thunder Rods always impress with some great racing and big grids at each and every meeting, with the teenagers in the Junior Productions completing the programme.

The first race leaves the grid at 6.30pm.

Due to a lack of bookings, the Classic Hot Rods have unfortunately been removed from the September Speedweekend at Aghadowey Oval. This decision was not taken lightly, and we would like to apologise for any inconvenience it may cause.

We are looking to the future with their replacement, and after the success of the recent World Final weekend the Ninja Karts will now feature on both days of the weekend at Aghadowey. The Keir Millar Memorial Trophy was originally scheduled for Sunday, but they will now also race on Saturday for the DMC Gold Cup.

The Junior Productions have been added to the Sunday programme too, and will now not feature at the previous week's fixture at Tullyroan Oval.

The feature event of the weekend on September 17th/18th will be the 61st running of the Superstox Championship of the World, with the National Hot Rods British Championship and 2.0 Hot Rods European Championship also on the programme.

England’s Jake Banwell was the big winner on a sensational night of international Stock Car Racing at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday. The Norfolk driver pulled off a perfect last bend move to win the 1300 Stock Cars National Championship, whilst Antrim’s Ryan McCrory took victory in the coveted Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy for 2.0 Hot Rods. Other feature race winners were Portadown teenager James Stewart in the Superstox, Bleary’s Mark Corry in the Lightning Rods and Crumlin’s Riley Dawson-Stirling in the Ninja Karts.

A star studded field of 1300 Stock Cars arrived to do battle for their 2022 National Championship, with visitors from England and Scotland lining up alongside the best of the local drivers. Amidst some fantastic action, the opening heat saw a win for recent form man Josh McKinstry, as he headed home Scottish duo Darren Suddaby and Ally Strachan. Heat two saw Suddaby ahead until a late race caution period, with Norfolk’s Jake Banwell pouncing on the one lap dash to the line to take the win.
A sensational start to the National Championship final saw huge drama on the opening laps which caused an early caution. Once they got going again Banwell and fellow English driver Jacob Roff pulled clear out front. Banwell led most of the distance until Roff moved ahead entering the final stages, but Banwell was watching his prey and pounced as they entered the last bend. He sent Roff out wide to the wall with his bumper and moved through on the inside to snatch the win by the narrowest of margins. Chris Hamill came through for third ahead of Strachan and Fraser Clark at the end of an outstanding race.

With the stunning Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy up for grabs, the racing in the 2.0 Hot Rods was always going to be fiercely competitive. Scott Cochrane won the opening heat head of Conor Hughes and defending champion Allen Cherry. Heat two saw the returning Gary Butler take a clear win over Adam Heatrick and Mervyn Emerson.
The final saw Hughes holding the early lead from pole position, with Ryan McCrory tracking his every move. Ryan was looking every inch the faster man, and he finally found a gap down the inside to power through to the lead on the Tullyroan Bend. He quickly surged clear and took a tremendous win to land what is arguably the finest piece of silverware on the local racing scene. Butler came through for second ahead of the new World Champion Jordan Rochford, who earlier in the evening had been given a rousing welcome home as he displayed the gold roof for the first time.

Another packed grid of Superstox provided some excellent racing, with rising star James Stewart taking the opening heat win ahead of Craig McConnell. Novice Andrew Murphy showed great pace to take the second heat win ahead of Graham Meek and Stewart.
The final saw Murphy lead early on, but he had no answer to the pace of Stewart who surged ahead to take his second win of the night in some style. David Beattie, McConnell and David McMenemy chased him home.

Amongst the other formulas on show, Mark Corry took a heat and final double in the Lightning Rods, with Dean Catherwood taking the other heat to see the new BMW models take all three wins on the night.

In the Ninja Karts for 6-11 year olds, Noah Teggart and Riley Dawson-Stirling won the heats, before a raft of penalties for jumping a restart caused controversy in the final. On the road winner Keegan Turtle was one of those to be demoted in the official result, which handed a second win of the meeting to Dawson-Stirling ahead of Charlie Johnston and Turtle.

A couple of demonstration races from the Classic Hot Rods completed the line up, with both falling to Anthony Morgan. The first one was especially close after a late battle between Morgan and Mark Monaghan.

Portadown National Hot Rod star Glenn Bell continued his great recent form with victory in the feature race at Round 2 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night. The other big event was the King of Aghadowey for the Unlimited National Bangers which saw Templepatrick’s Gordy McKee steal through for victory.
The Young Trophy for the Junior Productions fell to Randalstown’s Sam Percy, whilst Nutts Corner’s Josh McKinstry reeled off a faultless hat-trick of wins in the 1300 Stock Cars. The other feature race win fell to Limavady’s Josh Goligher in the Thunder Rods.

Donegal driver Terence McConalogue was the star of the National Hot Rods heats, taking both wins and showing some great pace. Kells driver Carl Sloan chased him home in heat one, with Kenny McCann runner up in heat two after Sloan was docked a couple of spots for contact.
Unsurprisingly McConalogue set the pace in the feature race of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, with Sloan breaking clear from the pack to go second. Carl launched his attack for the lead as Bell brought himself into contention too. One slip from the lead duo was all it took, as McConalogue slithered wide taking Sloan with him, and Bell was through in a shot. Glenn cruised home to take his second win in as many weeks, with Sloan in second after a very productive evening. John Christie, Derek Martin and Shane Murray completed the top five.

The King of Aghadowey final for the Unlimited National Bangers saw a red flag early on as a huge shot from Deano McGrath saw him destroy the hearse of Tony Gillespie but end up on his roof! He emerged unscathed, with Stevo McGrath taking up the running. He lost out to a fast charging Gordy McKee, the former Lightning Rods World Champ taking his first big win in the Bangers. England’s Liam Lake and Stevo McGrath completed the top three.
Lake then won the opening Allcomers event ahead of Stevo McGrath before McKee took another win in Allcomers 2. The Destruction Derby saw Kieran McIvor’s classic Jaguar smashed from pillar to post, as was Rodney Herron’s Volvo, but it was Lake who came through for the victory. He also claimed the Entertainer of the Day award as he set about destroying everything in the DD!

The teenage stars in the Junior Productions were contesting The Young Trophy, presented annually by the Young and Hosie families. Ryan Berry, one of the youngest drivers in the formula, drove a fantastic race to win heat one before his sister Lauren made it a family double by claiming victory in heat two.
A crash early in the final eliminated a few of the front runners, but there were no such problems for Sam Percy. In his last ever outing in the formula as he approaches his sixteenth birthday, Sam drove a fantastic race to pull clear out front to take a commanding victory over an impressive Stewart Hanna and the ever-improving Callum Doak. There were also awards for the best novice grade driver which went to Brandon Litter, the best yellow grade driver which fell to Lauren Berry and also a Merit Award which went to Scottish driver Koddi Wright for his long journey to take part which saw him ultimately finish in seventh place.

Numbers were down slightly in the 1300 Stock Cars, but that didn’t detract from the action on track with the bumpers put to good use all evening. Josh McKinstry was the star of the show, taking a hat-trick of wins in both heats and the final.
Ivan Elliott claimed second in heat one before Chris Hamill was the runner up in heat two. Both those superstars gave chase to McKinstry with all they could in the final, but Josh held on for the win even after a promotion to blue grade for the feature race. Hamill and Elliott completed the podium.

Another huge field of Thunder Rods produced exciting racing from green flag to chequered flag, with Jason Darragh taking a great win in heat one over Sam Watt and Chris Baird. Watt went one better in heat two as he claimed the win over Adam McKinney.
Andrew McLean and Josh Goligher fought a tough battle for the lead in the final which had everyone on the edge of their seats, especially in the closing laps when the whole packed joined onto their tail to make it a huge race to the line. A lengthy Stewards Enquiry was required after the flag, with Goligher taking the win ahead of Darragh and Baird.

Two World Champions were crowned during a 3 day festival of short oval motorsport at Tullyroan Oval over the weekend. Banbridge driver Colin McNiece secured the biggest victory of his career when he was crowned Stock Rods World Champion, whilst 10-year-old Antrim racer Leyton Hughes was successful in the defence of his Ninja Karts World title.

The other major event was the Lightning Rods British Championship, which fell the way of Magheralin’s Stuart Agnew.

The Stock Rods World title qualifying heats were shared between Niall McFerran, defending champion Siobhan Martin and Sam Neice. Once the points were calculated it was Banbridge racer Colin McNiece who had grabbed pole position courtesy of a sixth and a fourth from his two outings.

A frantic start to the Auto Collision Belfast sponsored World Championship race saw Colin McNiece take the lead, with Martin and England’s John Smith tucked in behind. Martin then made her move for the top spot, circulating side by side with the leader for lap after lap but just unable to make a move stick. McNeice has everything under control though, never putting a foot wrong as he came home to take the World title in commanding style! Smith came through for second in the end, with Martin having to settle for third after a spirited defence of her title.

The Ninja Karts also had three LJN Motorsport-sponsored World Championship qualifying heats, with defending champion Leyton Hughes driving superbly to win both the opening qualifiers. Later in the evening Scotland’s Dougie Kidd came through for the win in the third and final heat.

After a great build up for the young stars, a tremendous World Final race followed, with a number of drivers challenging for the lead throughout the 15 lap event. Time and again the lead changed, and following post-race technical checks it was Hughes who was crowned World Champion for the second year in a row. European Champion Murray Hall took second, with fellow English star Clark Ferris coming through for a fine third place.

Heading the support action was the opening round of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods, where Portadown’’s Glenn Bell took the final honours with a great outside line drive. Earlier Shane Murray and Adam Maxwell had shared the heat wins.

The Ninja Karts also contested the Irish Open Championship which fell to England’s Charlie Weston after a great drive, with Cullybackey’s Keegan Turtle impressing in second ahead of Scotland’s Katie-Lee Smart in third.
Another Irish Open Championship, this time for the Lightning Rods, went the way of Strabane’s James McKinney with Nigel Jackson and Mark Corry the placemen.

Siobhan Martin looked odds on to win the Stock Rods Irish Masters only for mechanical woes to rob her mid race when well clear. Marc Morrell then suffered the same fate, which opened the door for Dan Shannon to take the win over Joe Largey and Gary Dean.

Former Bangers World Champion Steven Bolton from Ballymoney joined the 1300 Stock Cars on Saturday and duly won the Irish Masters title with a well executed last bend lunge on Davy Wright which had the crowd on their feet cheering at the tremendous action.

Bangor’s Craig McConnell was a deserving winner of the Superstox Tullyroan Challenge Cup ahead of Kyle Beattie and Jamie McCann, after James Stewart and McCann had shared the heat wins. Lastly, young Belfast star Dylan Fegan was the one to watch in the Junior Productions as he claimed a heat and final double.
